A Community Foundation by and for the Community

The volunteer members of the Board of the Shorewood Foundation are all people who love Shorewood, collectively providing many years of service to the community and much energy to the work of the Foundation.

The Foundation is steward of the many generous gifts given to help make Shorewood the place we love to live. We are thankful for Bill Benjamin's million-dollar gift on behalf of the Senior Resource Center and for our neighbor's $25 gift on behalf of the Family Day fireworks. No matter the size of the donation, it's given from your heart for our home, and every gift makes Shorewood better. For us, Shorewood isn't just a place on a map. It's a place in our hearts, and one we treasure.

Our volunteer Board members each make a strong personal commitment to the Foundation and its principals. You can download and read the Shorewood Foundation Annual Personal Commitment Form by clicking here.
